    Default Help typing younger sister

    I've been kind of baffled about my sister's type as of late. I gave her the test, and she came out as an ISTP, but it just didn't seem quite right. A brief sketch of her habits/personality:

    -She's got a sharp tongue with strangers and anything in the media, and is not afraid to express her opinions, but with people a little closer to her, she'll bend over backwards to make them happy. She's the sort of person who will spend a lot of time buying a birthday gift, hand draw a card, and hold her breath as the gift opened, nervous that she didn't choose correctly.

    -She could be sort of loner, but I think that's more a result of my parents preferring her to stay inside the house than anything. She's quite lively around all her little schoolfriends. She's a lot milder than I am at family gatherings and with relatives, and much better at concealing dislike and disdain.

    -She will check out the same books from the library over and over again to reread them. Not once or twice, mind you, but if you choose a book from her library stack, chances are that she's read it at least twenty times.

    -She enjoys science, but mostly biology. She does not care for either math or chemistry. Has professed an interest in studying anatomy, and neurosciences.

    -Her writing is quite vivid, especially when describing scenery or specific emotions. However, she rarely uses puns. She says that she just doesn't care for them. She also tends to avoid nonfiction, and instead prefers novels.

    -She doesn't care for sports or theme parks, basically anything where the object is an adrenaline "rush".

    -She's incredibly particular about what type of pencils are bought for her, what brand of pasta she gets from the store, what clothes she is wearing, etc. However, in general, she's not particularly organized. She's one of those where you shouldn't disturb the laundry heap on the floor because she knows how old which shirts are, and which ones are non-smelly enough to wear.

    I realize it's not a whole lot to go on, but I'm still hoping for some insights.

    From that information alone, ISTJ 5w4 sx/sp, although more would certainly be useful.

    Was the test you gave her a dichotomy based one, or cognitive function?

    My first thought was ISTJ. Then ISFJ.

    The test I gave her was dichotomy based. In restrospect, it probably would have been a little more enlightening to give her a functions based test.
    But I think ISxJ sounds pretty good as a starting point.

    Indeed ISxJ sounds like a good staring point.

    Have her take this test (if it isn't too much trouble): http://www.keys2cognition.com/explore.htm
